Just got back frem the 10:00p sneak preview of Snakes on a Plane. I expected it to be pretty crappy, but overall it wasnt to bad. Lots of CGI snakes w/some real snakes mixed in. When the snakes are in the scenes, it was pretty intense. The snakes tagged old people, young people, kids. The snakes were biting people EVERYWHERE: crotch, boobs, eyes, face, necks. It will make you look b4 taking a piss again. Once again Samual Jackson was the man and of course, has to save the day.

It's not going to win any oscars, but it was a fun movie........

Not really, if you think about it.

Waiting now for the monkey see monkey do idiots to start breaking snakes on passenger planes & turning them loose.

I heard on the radio from the writer(?) that the production company wanted to change the title. Samuel L. told them that he only signed on because he loved the title and would quit if they changed it.

I think it's great.

I have'nt seen it, (nor will I), But I think if confronted with a plane load of snakes at 30K feet, I'd simply announce to the passengers that they should bundle up, because it's about to get Very, very cold in here. You can keep warm by stomping the shit out of cold, immobilized snakes.

I'd say we are really dragging the bottom of the barrel for movie themes...

I have a feeling that anything the production company came up with sounded campy.

Movies like this is why I only go to the movies about four times a year.

I thought is was the most fun movie I have watched in a long time.

I already saw a trailer for an ultra-weak rip off called "Snakes On A Train".

This is one of those movies that will ONLY be worth seeing in the theater. If you rent it and watch it at home, you just miss out on what is going to make this a fun movie, unless you've got a lot of friends over. The theater experience should be great, because everyone's celebrating a campy, stupid movie together. But if you're watching it by yourself, what's the point? Then it's just a dumb movie.

I heard an interview with Samuel L. Jackson this morning. As a kid he was a ibg fan of movies like The Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Blob etc. He took the role solely based upon the title. He always wanted to be in one of those chintzy horror flicks. He was saying that based upon the title there are only a few things that could happen so he knew it was for fun. The interview was a hoot to listen too. He did insist on keeping the title as is because that was the name of the movie he signed on to do. A good old fashioned 50's style horror flick.

I agree with most of you in that people will celebrate this as a crappy funny movie to watch. But me and Tso have agreed this is not worth paying for. Two tickets for Talledega Nights please, then we'll catch a showing of Snakes on a Plane. He was saying we'd get caught because they would be like hey nobody bought tickets to this showing ... what are you twodoing in here?

Snakes on a Plane was outstanding! I went with fourteen of my friends to a theatre whose customers are typically college-age. The audience was friggin hilarious. When Samuel L. Jackson made his first appearance as a Beretta toting FBI agent, the entire place erupted with cheers.

When the second snake attack occurs in the bathroom, a guy yelled, "Quick, someone suck the poison out!" for which he received an ovation.

The classic line of the movie, "That's it! I have had it with these motherfuckin' snakes on this motherfuckin' plane!" could not even be heard (or seen) as the entire theatre went apeshit.

I was laughing uncontrollably for at least half of the movie.

Lots of gore, some titties, lots of BOTDs. Only guns seen were a nickel M9 (carried SOTB by Samuel L) and a Sig carried by an FBI agent on the ground. Couldn't tell which type.

If you can see it in a crowded theatre, please do so. You won't regret it.

It is a free-wheeling comedy/horror that KNOWS it is stupid so it doesn't let itself be cheesy.

Hilarious.

I think the plot is that there is some kind of VIP or government witness or something on the plane, and an assassin sneaks a ton of them on the plane in an attempt to kill him/her.

Seems like in reality, the plane could be on the ground in pretty short order if they needed to make an emergency landing. I'm sure there will be some plot device that keeps them in the air. We're going to see it tonight with some friends, so I'm hoping it's as fun a ride as I expect.

I may have to see this movie.

A snooty movie critic at a Boston TV channel who universally takes a flamethrower to most stupid movies actually used words like hilarious and exciting in her review this morning.

AK47..When you got to kill every mutha-fuckin snake on da plane, except no substitute.

Really though, I think the name is plane Ghey! I think that's part of everyone thinking it's going to suck. They should have went with "airborne venom" or some shit, but Snakes on a plane...

Me too.
On the news I watch, the critic has a tendency to love the artsy fartsy crap too.
He said he hadn't had that much fun in the theatre since "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". He said that when the previews started, the audience was going "Sssss Ssss".
Said it was worth going to see just for the audience participation.

Link Posted: 8/25/2006 7:55:04 AM EDT
Well.. it wasn't all that bad. Jackson defintely made the movie, and if there wasn't some comedy in it.. I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it that much.

I went with a girl who missed about 1/2 of the movie.. cuz she was covering her eyes so much.
